During his visit to Hermosillo to celebrate the 60th anniversary of ordination of Archbishop Emeritus Carlos Quintero Arce, the Apostolic Nuncio of Mexico, Archbishop Giuseppe Bertello, spoke about the spread of religious sects in the country and said they “constituted a challenge to the Church to live the Gospel and the faith as a true commitment.”
The Nuncio said the presence of sects and evangelical groups in Mexican families will always be a challenge to “live fully our Catholic faith and to have the desire and the commitment to not only be faithful but to proclaim the Gospel.”
In the arrival ceremony at the Hermosillo airport, Archbishop Bertello conveyed the congratulations of Pope John Paul II to Archbishop Quintero Arce. “I am happy to be with the Archdiocese for this beautiful celebration. I bring with me a message of congratulation with an Apostolic Blessing,” he said.
